Damian Lillard reportedly will avoid fine for actions, comments following blown call




 

The referees got the call wrong, but at least the league office handled the aftermath right.

Damian Lillard was understandably hot after the referees missed a clear goaltend by Rudy Gobert on a layup that would have tied that Friday night game in the final seconds. A team security official held him back from going to yell at the officials postgame, then later Lillard vented on social media.



Often the league will fine a player or coach for an outburst like this - even when they are in the right - but this time the league is letting it slide, reports Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

That's the right decision by the league.

Now the NBA needs to set up a way for the officials in the replay center to notify officials on the court of an obvious, game-changing missed call. If the goal is to get the calls right, then get them all right.
